'Smart' simply means

you're ready to learn.

Learn how to manage content, write code for your project, and how to contribute to the open source project.

Manage your content confidently


Using the CMS is a breeze, the CMS User Help guide has been specially created to help web administrators and content authors learn how to make the most of SilverStripe. The user help will get you started managing content and team. Learn web content best practices to make your content web friendly, and don’t forget the SilverStripe community is always on hand to answer questions and give guidance.

Developer Learning


We believe knowledge is best learnt by engaging with other SilverStripe practitioners and getting to know others in the community. Whether your focus is front-end or back-end development, there are several resources and ways to connect with others to help you on your way. 

Get started by working through our Lessons section then read over the developer documentation, or dig a little deeper into our API reference. Don’t hesitate to raise a question on the forums, chat to other SilverStripers via Slack or attend one of our Meetups or Hackfests.
